    Pros

    Lots of opportunities and very good culture. Innovation and creativity are rewarded. Easy access to all levels of company management.

    Cons

    If you don't work on the operations side of the house or in a revenue generating entity it can sometimes feel like you are a second class citizen.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward the value of your support staff. Running a company is not possible without them and it is not okay to treat them as necessary evils.

    Keep your employees who perform well acknowledged and work on weeding out the people dragging us all down.

    Pros

    Innovative company which allows employees to participate in creation of new products, evolving technology, and opportunity for advancement within company.

    Cons

    Female leadership opportunities could use better focus. Keeping former executives on the payroll for extended periods while enacting front line hiring freezes leads to incongruity and lowers employee & management morale.

    Advice to Management

    Provide continued advancement opportunities for those whom are working on special projects at the request of their management. No employee wants to put their career on hold, while fulfilling a specific directive.

    Pros

    Opportunity for advancement, friendly work environment with upper management supportive of family and work balance.

    Cons

    The pros listed above may vary depending on which department you work in and could be subject to change with reorganization.

    Advice to Management

    There's plenty of evidence to support that people who work from home are productive, perhaps even more so than those in an office environment. I would ask Ron to consider advising management to be open to the idea VS the hard line some take.
